Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This unassuming little CD covering Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance repertoire has both plus and minus points... But what's not expressed on the front or rear sleeve is that it's actually a sequenced UK 7" SINGLES COMPILATION with two live rarities thrown in at the end. The sound quality is really superb too in places (but only iffy in others). Issued in 2000 and made in the Czech Republic, Neon NE 34553 breaks down as follows (72:54 minutes):

1. How Come
2. Tell Everyone
3. Done This One Before
1 to 3 are his Debut Solo 7" single on GM Records GMS 011 from January 1974 (1 is the A-side, 2 and 3 are B1 and B2)
[It was reissued as above in January 1977 on GM Records GMS 9044]

4. The Poacher
5. Bye And Bye (Gonna See The King)
4 and 5 are the A&B sides of his 2nd 7" on GM Records GMS 024 from May 1974

6. Roll On Babe
7. Anymore For Anymore
6 and 7 are the A&B sides of his 3rd 7" on GM Records GMS 033 from February 1975

8. What Went Down (That Night With You)
9. Lovely
8 and 9 are the A&B sides of his 4th 7" single on Island WIP 6216 from February 1975

10. Brother Can You Spare A Dime
11. Ain't No Lady
10 and 11 are the A&B sides of his 5th 7" on Island WIP 6229 from April 1975

12. Don't Try And Change My Mind
13. Well, Well Hello (The Party)
12 and 13 are the A&B sides of his 6th 7" on Island WIP 6258 from January 1976

14. Kuschty Rye
15. You're So Right
14 and 15 are the A&B sides of his 8th 7" single on Gem Records GEMS 12 from July 1979

16. One Step
17. Lad's Got Money
16 and 17 are the A&B sides of his 9th 7" single on Gem Records GEMS 19 from January 1980

18. Stone [Live]

There are two ronnie lane compilations titled how come. 2003 on alchemy and 2001 on Neon Records. Amazon, rather annoyingly, have merged the reviews for the two CDs. I read the review below listing the 19 tracks and I received a CD (on Alchemy) with only 10 tracks. It's the Neon one with 19 tracks. Not the seller's fault, but Amazon shouldn't merge reviews when they don't provide tracklistings.

Musically it's hit and miss some fillers and some god stuff. I got the track How Come which is what I really wanted so not all bad.

It would be a hard hearted person not to feel sadness at the tragedy of Ronnie Lane's illness and early passing. The knowledge of his fate hangs over some of the music like a dank mist. So many of Lane's songs are those of a dreamer and of a longing that can never be achieved. We have 'fish with eyes of jewels'(The beautiful 'The Poacher') and the achingly lovely 'Anymore for Anymore' where Ronnie and his lady head for the quietness of Merrie England - an England probably of the mind rather than the reality.

Ronnie Lane spent some years travelling the country in a Tinker Caravan influenced by romantic notions of the freedom of the Romany Gypsy. The gentle 'Roll On Babe' would be performed at some small town hall and these songs display an essential intimacy that is very affecting. The voice of his London roots are evident in songs such as 'Kuschty Rye'. Kuschty means something akin to 'thats really good (originally applied to bread)' and probably comes from the London Jewish (Yiddish) that was spoken in the part of London from which Lane originated. 'How Come' with its clever wordplay is a memorable opener with an ironic humour.

Lane's love of Americana led him eventually to live in the United States but I do wonder if he ever felt he'd arrived since so many of the best songs on this collection are about travelling to arrive in a better future. The rollicking 'Bye and Bye (Gonna See The King)' has religious inclinations but is surely about going to visit Elvis. 'Sweet Virginia' is, of course, a Jagger/Richards song but suits Lane perfectly and is a fitting finale to an impressive body of work.

I decided to buy this CD after listening to my Small Faces CD "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake" and decided to look into Ronnie Lane's career. The reviews below did the rest and right now I'm sitting here writing a review while listening to this wonderful CD. His voice reminds me a bit of George Harrison, but that's probably just me.

Ronnie's music might have sounded out of place in the early seventies when glam rock was the latest craze but now it holds up on its' own and his music is of a timeless quality and I am convinced that it will be even more appreciated in future years, like good wine.

I like this CD so much that I ordered me a copy of Ronnie's Slim Chance CD as well!

This CD is excellent. Plonk would have been chuffed with the production, the presentation and the performances - each track stands up 20 or more years after they were put down. The bloke had a nack for putting a melody down and adding enough hooks to hold a Great White in a rip tide. It's been my retro summer album. I would recommend it to anyone who can tell when a band of good musicians are having a good time and can kick back and enjoy it too.
